Monster House Books LLC (MHB) today announced successful numbers having to do with strong heroines, both in fact and fiction. The company reports that its Angelbound series has driven more than 500,000 ebook orders. In addition, Angelbound author and MHB Founder Christina Bauer also led public relations efforts for the Massachusetts Chapter of the Women’s March on Washington. Before the march, Bauer’s press release gathered more than 19,000 views on a global basis.

A Half-Million eBooks

In MHB’s best-selling Angelbound series, the heroine is a part-demon girl who fights in Purgatory’s Arena and falls for a part-angel prince. Over the lifetime of the company, the series has driven over 500,000 ebook orders, both free and paid, as well as more than 9,000 reviews on Goodreads and retailers. Angelbound is one of five different series currently offered my MHB.
